Sarah Randall

 

Artist Statement

Randall's studio practice explores the genre of still life painting, through the medium of oil paint on wood. The objects she chooses to render are objects that sit quietly in the world, overlooked in the business of our daily life. The way we relate to these objects is in one way how we relate to each other. In the moments of their use, these objects give us space for reflection and communication, drawing people together to the table. As such, her body of work examines the relationship between people through their objects. These painted objects act as a metaphor for the individual and speak collectively to the notion of communion.
